Local Hospice has been celebrating its 40th anniversary with a special appeal
As 2015 is its 40th anniversary, St Peter & St James Hospice has been celebrating the year with a special appeal. The Hospice held an exciting calendar of events throughout this year and launched a special anniversary appeal to help support the vital services it provides to the community. All at the Hospice would like to thank those who have donated to the appeal, which has raised £37,000, so far.
Anyone still wishing to donate to the special appeal can do so online by going to the Hospice’s website at www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk or picking up a leaflet from the Hospice or any of its eight shops throughout the local community (Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Lindfield and Uckfield).
While £37,000 is a fantastic amount, reaching £40,000 to match the 40th anniversary would make it even more special and provide additional much-needed funds. St Peter & St James is the Sussex hospice caring for patients in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and surrounding villages. With a population of 200,000, if every person in the catchment area gave just £1 a month this would nearly cover the running costs.
